Prison Escape | Vicky & Casey White

May 19, 2022, 04:00 AM

On April 29, 2022, Vicky White made a decision that would alter the course of her life.  Nothing would ever be the same.

Early that morning, Vicky put a long-thought out plan into motion.  She was ready.  She told her colleagues at the Lauderdale County Detention Center that she was transporting inmate Casey Cole White to a mental health evaluation.  She broke all protocol and escorted the inmate alone – she had her excuses for doing so ready and nobody questioned her.  She also told her workplace that she had a medical appointment that day and that she would likely not return to work.

There were no appointments – either for Vicky or Casey.  The corrections officer and the inmate had been carrying on an illicit affair for two years.  The two went on the run, through many states.  They had $90k cash to fund their escapade.  Police always seemed to be one step behind them.

Until May 9.  Vicky and Casey were spotted leaving a budget motel in Evansville, Indiana and a police chase ensued.  Their car crashed and Vicky took her own life before she could be apprehended.  Casey was taken back into custody.

In this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast we discuss the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ style case of Vicky White and Casey Cole White.
